Are you referring to the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation?

Agency regulations appear in a separate repository than the statutory code. Most agencies post links to both their statutory authority and to their regulations on their website. They typically do not have their own police department, but sometimes they do, and that would...

You could consult with an Alabama attorney, but it would be a difficult case. The attorney would likely want to see medical records to substantiate the pains described.

Grant St Julian III's answer
What you state is not a defense. Having a license plate in the windshield is a violation of the law if the car is driven on a Texas road, regardless of where the car was purchased.

Terrence H Thorgaard's answer
Your attorney would know best, but I don't think that the Florida court will decline jurisdiction which it clearly has under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (Florida Statute 61.501 et seq.).

Answered on Oct 8, 2018
Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer
I'm not sure what you are asking but if you are questioning the legitimacy of the DMV procedures because the hearing officer is both the prosecutor and the fact finder, that has been litigated and upheld. You should ask your lawyer what appellate steps can be taken following an adverse DMV decision.

Q: Are Maryland public school teachers considered state employees?

2 Answers | Asked in Education Law and Gov & Administrative Law for Maryland on
Answered on Oct 2, 2018
Joseph D. Allen's answer
This is a much more complicated question than it appears. For some purposes, school board employees are state employees, and for other purposes they are local government employees. Maryland school boards are an odd hybrid- and the appellate courts are still struggling with how to classify them.

So I answered this question quite extensively. I told you what to do and how to do it. If you want to give me a call or an email, please do. I'm very good at these hearings. I know the law on Unemployment and most attorneys do not.

Donald Arthur Hilland's answer
Based on your question, I am hoping you mean an EDD Unemployment Appeal, which if I'm correct you got a letter stating that under Unemployment Insurance Code 1256 you are disqualified and must now work another quarter and earn a certain amount before you can reapply. If I'm correct, then you should definitely appeal and your test does have evidentiary value. I have done over 100 of these Unemployment Appeals and I only lost 1, which was when the client did not bring me the paperwork within 20...

Mr. Michael O. Stevens' answer
There probably is, but it would be time consuming to find those few who do. That said, you do not need an Oregon attorney, you need an AZ one that does wrongful death. Just do a Google search for wrongful death attorney in the closest bigger city and then make some calls.

Q: If the judge residing on your current case used to b states attny and you beat a case against him, be conflict of intrst

1 Answer | Asked in Gov & Administrative Law for Illinois on
Answered on Sep 8, 2018
T. J. Jesky's answer
I would definitely say for the judge to preside on this case would be a conflict of interest. I would think that even the judge would agree. He has the potential to hold a grudge against you. How can you receive a fair trial. You immediately need to petition for a new judge. This should not be difficult nor an issue. By the way, if he fails to step aside; you have a great basis for an appeal.
